This is a sequel to the first article about the terrible math teacher. This woman is insane. Every five weeks she reviews our personal math book. This is the spiral with all our classwork. The requirements are quite strict and unfair. The teacher whose name will not be stated is strict and unfair in general.

These are the requirements:

  1. Each entry will include the date in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Each entry will include a heading that identifies the entry.
  3. Questions and answers will be written completely, with all steps shown.
  4. Each entry will be started on a new page (No loose entries and multiple entries may not be attached to a page)
  5. All entries will be neat, in order and complete.
  6. All entries will be completed in pencil.
  7. Corrections will be done in red pen or colored pencil
  8. Students will get missing entries from a classmate upon return from an absence.
  9. Course content letter, required supplies/entry requirements, and top five will be included as the first three entries.
  10. A table of contents that identifies each assignment by topic/goal and indicates the page number of each entry will be included after the top five and before the first entry.

Last time she said the following:”Using graph paper sided trimmed to fit page (open) so it can be seen for all  graphs, Do not put folded, double sided pages onto a single page. Thanks!” This was SO confusing to me, and I had no idea what she was saying. I got a B, to be exact, an eighty percent.

She recently collected our PMBs, the personal math books, for the final grade. It was graded over the four day weekend and stressed me out the whole time. The fact houses were burning just added fuel to the fire of my stress, pun intended. I finally got the grade, another B. This time it was an eighty-five percent. What did I do wrong this time? Turns out the grade isn’t even in my personal math book. I was expecting another “Using graph paper sided trimmed to fit page (open) so it can be seen for all  graphs, Do not put folded, double sided pages onto a single page. Thanks!” This time though I didn’t even get anything. I’m not sure if she even graded my math  book or just put in some bad grade. This teacher really has problems. Sigh…
